I just got Patriots money line at -141 at Cantor.



That's a great deal because the books would take it down from the spread at least to -130 to buy one half of a point off of a 3 and that would only get the bettor to -2.5.

Very similar to four days ago.
There's a comment in another thread that the lines haven't really moved and this is great for bookmakers, which may explain why the book values are so good.

I was absolutely fascinated by the logistics of the hand-held lighting effect in the huge pit. They couldn't have been wired; people would've gotten hurt on the cords. So thousands of wireless torches, firing in complicated sequences, aided by in-place choreography. Must have had a half dozen bulbs for the colors. How did they even do that?

I thought it was pretty cool too. They were making patterns and spelling words with the hand held LED lanterns. They use radio signals to trigger them but the thing that was neat was that the folks on the ground had to stand in certain spots, even though it didn't look choreographed. The giveaway was when certain folks had to move from the stage to make lines of different colored lights on the field, then the folks on the field were moving their lights in choreographed waves. These were not random folks who won field tickets in a radio station contest.

Disney has mouse ear hats with the same technology. They change the colors of the ears of the audience members during the fireworks shows. You can also purchase a "wand" that can change the color of other people's ears.

I have seen this at hockey arenas too. I want to say when the Pens played the caps last year the caps had it . Each section had different colors that all changed in sequence.

GOAT superbowl I've ever seen. How the hell did the Pats do that?
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

Sometimes in the game of american football, you must be sure what you see is what it counts as.
